Fair Trade Maasai Beaded Dangle Disk Earrings from Tanzania
These handmade East African earrings are a combination of bronze, black, gold, clear, and silver beads of various shades. These beads match the beads that are used in the rings of the Empowerment Necklace (sold separately). The Empowerment earrings and necklace are beautiful worn as a set or individually.
All beads and wire are locally sourced from markets in East Africa in order to support the local economy.
Because each of our products is handcrafted, there may be some size and color variations, making each one unique.
Approximate diameter: 1-1/4 in
Female Genital Mutilation, FGM, is a cultural expectation still widely practiced in many areas of the world, including among the Maasai of East Africa. At Daraja Imports, we believe that every young woman should be given the knowledge she needs, as well as the permission required, to make an informed choice about this life-altering procedure. Toward that end, a portion of the proceeds from our Empowerment Necklace is used for education, awareness and the creation of a safe environment for open discussion and the promotion of a woman’s choice in this matter. Thank you for partnering with us in this worthy endeavor. All Daraja Imports products are Fair Trade and handcrafted in Eastern and Southern Africa from local, sustainable and/or recycled material.
